Nicollette Sheridan vs. Marc Cherry

Nicollette Sheridan vs. Marc Cherry

As a longtime fan of Desperate Housewives, I am rather sad to see the show come to its final season.  I have gotten used to turning on the TV on Sunday night to watch the ladies get into a great variety of sticky situations during the course of an episode.  After so many years, I almost feel as if Gaby, Lynette, Susan, and Bree are all my friends from the neighborhood.  So it is going to feel strange not seeing them anymore after this season.

A couple of seasons ago, I had already said goodbye to the bad girl of Wisteria Lane, Edie.  Her death on the show was rather unexpected, and I did not like seeing her go like that.  I never did understand why she had to die.

According to Nicollete Sheridan, the actress who played Edie on Desperate Housewives, her death on the show was not just for the sake of the script.  She believed it was personal, and she is now fighting back with a lawsuit against the show’s creator—Marc Cherry.  Nicollete Sheridan and her team of lawyers believe that the actress had lost out on a minimum of twenty million dollars ever since her Edie character was killed off on the Desperate Housewives show. 

So was it wrongful termination for Nicollete Sheridan?  The verdict isn’t in yet.  However, I must say that if Marc Cherry really did let Nicollete Sheridan go because of her previous assault claim, the death of Edie on the TV show would make a lot more sense to me.
